Johnny Depp Reminds Everyone Why He Doesn’t Do a Lot of Interviews

October 4th, 2011 // 62 Comments

Johnny Depp is notoriously reclusive when it comes to the media, in particular interviews and in light of his upcoming interview in Vanity Fair it seems he’s not without good reason. According to The Huffington Post via The NY Post, Johnny has a specific problem with photoshoots:

Well, you just feel like you’re being raped somehow,” he says (via the NY Post) about photo shoots. “Raped … It feels like a kind of weird — just weird, man.

That being said, I almost feel guilty attaching the above photoset of him at Cannes during what (in his mind) probably amounted to a vicious unwilling gang-bang of poses, smiles and camera flashes. It must have been traumatizing.

Seriously though, haven’t we been down this road before? I’m not implying that there are lessons in anything Kristen Stewart says or does, but I am saying that it’s hard to believe that celebrities haven’t figured out that their plight (fame, wealth, people constantly wanting to see pictures of them and/or know what they’re really like) is in no way comparable to a sex crime. Of all people, Johnny Depp should know better. After all, he’s the one who child-molested me out of ten bucks for that piece of shit The Tourist.

    Haha, the Tourist.

    Seriously though – to huge fans I imagine this would be sort of offensive. Doesn’t he love us, doesn’t he want us to keep buying his shit and making sure he gets paid millions of dollars per movie? It’s such a whiny little kid thing to say. If you really, truly feel that way, I’d say you are in the wrooooonnnnggg business.
    That being said…I would fuck him three ways from Sunday.

    “See that? That thing you’re doing right here with the cameras? Literally as awful as being forcibly violated by a sociopaths penis. I’ve probably got PTSD now because this has been so hard for me.”

    • Yvette

      LOL!!! Thank you for making my day! Johnny is so ridiculous!

    • Yvette

      Seriously, every time I mention what a jerk Johnny Depp is I will quote you.

    • Porter

      Please also remember that Johnny Depp supported Roman Polanski during his brief arrest. From “In an interview with The Independent, Depp said of the arrest, “Why now? Obviously, there is something going on somewhere. Somebody has made a deal with someone. Maybe there was a little money involved, but why now?”

      He added that Polanski “is not a predator. He’s 75 or 76 years old. He has got two beautiful kids, he has got a wife that he has been with for a long, long time. He is not out on the street.”

      Just so we’re clear. Polanski:not raep raep::Photographers:rape rape

  4. I hear the paps are planning a Nikon bukkake on his ass.

  5. perhaps if he weren’t dressed like a complete douchebag he wouldn’t be so traumatized with how he looks in photos. just sayin..

    • Liz

      He hasn’t aged well, has he? And he really needs to stop dressing like that kinda hot hipster guy you meet in college, who does drama and then goes to work for Goldman Sachs after graduation, but always has the idea that he’s a genuine guy, which he proves by dressing like a homeless man in his spare time/early retirement.

      Sod it, *I* know what I mean.

      • doodles

        Liz ya dumb bitch the man is almost 50. He has aged like a fine wine. I would bang that fine wine so hard. Me and that fine wine could do a photo shoot like nobody’s business, he’d be crying rape murder by the time I was done with his ass.

    • Dude took the words right out of my mouth. Having to watch yourself looking and acting like a depressed teenager has got to be traumatic. Seems like there’s two possible solutions, either try acting like an adult, or avoid the press.

  6. Venom

    The Tourist was not that bad. It was not great, but it was watchable.

    • Venom, yesterday i was with you on the 2pac discussion. today, i have to tell you to kindly go fuck yourself. that movie was trash, not to the level of Rock Star trash with long haired marky mark. but trash nonetheless.

      • dick

        Uh, hey ‘pimp’ – apparently you haven’t noticed…”Venom” is a drooling moron incapable of any resemblance of human interaction. Just an fyi.

      • Venom

        Pimp, perhaps I should have expanded on why I did not think the movie was not that bad.
        I did not pay to watch it, so for free, it was quite acceptable.

        Now Drive and Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Crystal Skull were utter piles of shit that I really should have asked for my money back.

    • Venom

      Ha Ha dick, you are a fucking loser.
      What, do you change your name up every week so you think people won’t know who you are?

      I would tell you to go eat a dick, but from your name, I am guessing you already prefer to do so.

  7. Liz

    “‘Tis better to stay silent and be thought a fool than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt.”

    I always suspected he was a douche. Now he’s removed all doubt and my sister owes me $5.

  8. “You want me to take your picture now? No, sorry man, I’m not into that whole ‘rapist’ thing.”

  9. Carles

    “he’s the one who child-molested me out of ten bucks for that piece of shit The Tourist.”

    Haha +1

  10. doctor joystick

    So does this mean that Ben Rothlisberger is merely giving imprtoptu photo shoots to girls in the men’s room?

  11. well

    Being drunk isn’t the same as someone caving your skull in with hand tools, doesn’t stop anyone saying that they’re “hammered”. Language changes over time, get over it.

  12. I feel so bad for him. He shits out those Pirates of The Caribbean movies and makes a fortune on them, lives in France with a super hot French girl and dresses like a homeless Truman Capote impersonator. Fuck you, Depp.

  13. herbiefrog

    hey dad of *lily rose*

    we are bro’s right ?

    god parents?

  14. SYLVI212

    Wow, John….sounds like you better keep refusing those interviews. Why are all of you Hollywood D’bags so damn ungrateful for your privilege? If you don’t like the pics, the interviews, the notariety and think the $$$ you earn is “stupid”, why don’t you leave the business? I doubt people will commit suicide over your leaving showbusiness. I’ve always enjoyed MOST of your movies (not all) but every time you open your mouth outside of a script, it makes me cringe.

  15. rough versus the grain

    What an ingrate. Thomas Jane would kill for this…

    Johnny Depp is one of the best actors but maybe because he isn’t acting and it’s really his personality. Is it me or does he seem a bit off, like “on something” off?

    J.D. can do and say whatever he wants.
    I’ve heard nothing but good things about him.
    Countless people have said they’ve stopped him in restaurants, airports, wherever, to get a picture and he never says no.
    He recorded his voice, as Jack Sparrow, for a little girl in a coma because everytime they play that movie near her hospital bed, her vitals go up.
    He’s dressed up as Sparrow numerous times and visited sick children to brighten their day. He does all of this without calling his agent, arranging for paparazzi or tweeting about it.
    In short, he’s not some typical Hollywood douche looking to make himself feel better. He genuinely does this to make others feel better.

    Besides that Donnie Brasco rules and he made Sleepy Hallow and Secret Window not only watchable, but frickin’ awesome!

    So if J.D. wants to make a movie about raping a Muppet I don’t give a crap.
    Depp is alright in my book and has a clear pass for anything he says and does from here on out.

    • Add to that his help in getting the West Memphis 3 freed – he attached his name to their ridiculous conviction and helped keep it on the radar. I’m willing to bet that the people who bitch about said photshoots have never been the object of one. If he’s talking about pap photo shoots, they are like a visual assault, so to characterize it in sexual terms as being invasive isn’t so ridiculous.

      And The Libertine was fucking fantastic so he gets a pass from me, too.

    First world problems, white people problems, rich people problems, etc.

    I like Depp and I like Kristen but at times like this I think it’s best we never know how dumb celebrities are, especially those who are super rich, successful and hard working. With a Kardashian you know what to expect, but from people who have the nerve to call themselves artists and what they do “art” (as opposed to, you know, just entertainment) it’s just worse and more embarrassing. This is where their lack of education shines. They don’t know how to speak, so next time you hear any of them say “I’m a reader” you know it’s bullshit. Watch as he apologizes and says “I meant I felt violated”, hey, maybe that’s what he meant. But it’s embarrassing that a grown ass man would speak like an 18 year old girl “I feel raped when you take my pic, bro” and not express properly that he feels his intimacy is being violated, not his asshole with a dick.

    Also, with this economy and how his pampered rich ass should be paying more taxes he shouldn’t have the NERVE to complain about stupid shit. I would shut the fuck and talk about my ~art instead of how hard my life is.

    I always thought he was a douchebag. I realize he’s good looking and all but I just can’t get past the pretentiousness. He seems like he’d be a drag to hang out with.

  21. Niki

    It’s nice to see folks who usually write nothing but douchey critiques of asswipe celebrities join together on this ‘rape’ crap. Some words seriously do not need to be re-appropriated into other contexts. I always thought JD was a stand-up guy but dude’s heading towards 50 and has a daughter, fer chrissakes. Learn to talk respectively, son.

    • Mike Walker

      It’s a figure of speech you dipshits. You know, like calling authoritarian people nazis, referring to your job as slavery, etc. Lighten the fuck up.

      • Niki

        It’s not a figure of speech, dipshit. It’s a word meaning forced sexual assault. Only a dude (that hasn’t been raped) would use this word out of context. I hope you never have a girlfriend/daughter. I’m sure they wouldn’t find your flippancy as awesome as you do.

      • Mike Walker

        It is being used as a figure of speech. Get a fucking dictionary.

        >Only a dude (that hasn’t been raped) would use this word out of context.

        Like ~99% of them?

    • Niki

      Mike…you’re not getting it. If you enjoy being a considerate human being (and I’m having my doubts!), you would consider that most folks who have been raped or have the potential to be raped don’t appreciate the flippant use of this word. Like a poster above said, only 18 year old girls and douchebags use this word out of context. It is not a word that needs to be used in a flippant manner. There are other words out there far more appropriate and more importantly NOT OFFENSIVE – use that dictionary you tote so much to find them!

      • Mike Walker

        A celebrity t&a site like the Superficial is an odd place to play out some pseudo-feminist political agenda, considering the usual misogynistic subject matter and even more misogynistic reader comments. Maybe HuffPo would be a better avenue for your overly earnest cavilling.

        Now, knock it off… you’re killing me.

        (apologies to all past and future murder victims and their families)

      • Sorry, Niki, but you’re just thinking too much. Put your brain on cruise control for a while and enjoy the scenery.

    • Mike, that was excellent. Depp’s complaining about the photo shoots being invasive, and if that’s how he feels, who are you, Niki, to qualify what his feelings are? He wasn’t being glib, any more than my neighbor was when his home was broken into and his family heirlooms were taken and his personal stuff was rifled through – he also equated that with rape because it felt like a personal violation. So was he being all male and flippant and utterly lacking in empathy to be able to connect being raped with a violation of his space, rather than his physical body? Because in case you’ve forgotten, Niki, rape isn’t really about sex, it’s about power, and he felt pretty fucking powerless at that point. ANYONE can be raped, it’s not like only women have a lock on being able to use the word.

      • MJB

        I agree with Niki. So having paparazzi trail you or having your home broken into and family heirlooms stolen is the same as being forcibly penetrated without your consent? Only an idiot (most likely male) would think this.
        Next time I feel threatened walking home late at night, I’ll scream out, “Please don’t take my picture. Don’t follow me home so you can steal the knickknacks my granny gave me. HELP!”

    • You might want to look into that lack of empathy thing – yo know, the condition you’re accusing anyone male on this board of being afflicted with.

      Next time you feel “threatened walking home late at night” ask why that is. It’s primarily because you feel powerless, you don’t feel in control of the situation, it’s not because you have an irrational fear of penises coming at you. If you’re going to be so relentlessly literal about everything in life, including the language, you’re in for a hard time. By that, of course, I mean you’ll be breaking rocks on a chain gang for the rest of your life.

      • MJB

        You obviously have problems with reading comprehension. According to you, I lack empathy because I think it’s ridiculous to equate paparazzi photo-taking with rape. I respect J.D. as an actor but he should have said he felt ‘violated.’
        Lots of women, children and even men wish they could be violated by picture-taking not by forcible penetration.
        WTH!? And no, dude, I don’t have an irrational fear of penis. I have a very rational fear and caution of strange men wanting to act out twisted crap on unsuspecting women like me especially as I walk home late at night.
        You must not have a mother, grandmother, sister(s), aunts, girlfriend or wife or even female friends that you care about.
        Words have meaning and if a famous highly-paid actor is going to complain about his cushy life and be glib with his comments, he deserves the criticism he gets.
        Your ‘breaking rocks on a chain gang for the rest of your life’ comment sounds like you’re projecting. Examine yourself.

    You see, man, he’s just not into the whole fame THING. Well, he is, in that he wants the money, admiration, awards, praise, and all that. He just not into the whole “having to work for it” or “downsides of fame” thing.

    Can’t everyone just love him unconditionally and do everything the way he wants it? That’s all he’s asking.

    Johnny doesn’t need to do interviews. I believe he also doesn’t give a shit what any of us think about him.

  25. Ghost

    He doesn’t like the fame? Fine. Retire. There is a literal line miles long of people willing to take his place at the top of the Hollywood toilet.

    People who achieve his amount of success then complain about it should be beaten with sticks.

  26. forrest gump

    he is convinced about himself he just a number who won’t make any difference at all if he drops dead tommorrow.

  27. Hey, Johnny, I’m going to take a few pictures. But I promise to put a condom on the lense first.

    Along with Robert De Niro, Depp is one of the greatest actors of our time.
